The Grange Golf Club (East course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1926

The Grange Golf Club (East course): Separated at one point by just 200 yards from Royal Adelaide Golf Club, it is no surprise to find The Grange Golf Club occupying similar, sand-based, linksy terrain. Here the East and West courses, each laid out in two nine-hole loops, roam across an expansive parkland area, where partly open, partly tree-lined fairways make their way to well-bunkered greens.

The East course is the slightly more recent design, marginally shorter and arguably not quite as impeccably maintained as its companion. It too benefits from firm, fast, links-like fairways, which will feel a tad tighter on some occasions than on the West.

Another departure from its companion is the occasional presence of water, not least along the rightside of both the par-5 4th and par-4 5th (known as Crow's Shed), where small wetland ponds dangerously threaten along the rightside of each hole. The par-4 7th and par-3 8th also bring water into play, this time on the leftside.

The terrain here is generally quite flat, with long grassy mounds and a liberal scattering of trees separating the holes. Between the 11th and 12th fairways a small preservation area contains some of the Adelaide sandbelt's rarer indigenous flora.

Although lacking a little of the West's charm and elegance, and occasionally a bit more exposed to housing beyond the perimeter, the East nonetheless provides an enjoyable and challenging round, especially with water threatening on the front-nine and several tightish drives to make on the inward-nine.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
